Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its great overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its high-end profile, this facility also received an excellent long-term care score, with a grade of A. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.830414 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its fine profile, this nursing home also was awarded an excellent short-term care score, with a grade of A-. In computing our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is considered to be a reliable measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded is this facility's weakest area. However, even in its weakest link we still gave it a respectable grade of C for nursing. We looked at the licensure of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses spent with residents, in calculating our rating in this area. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared with most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
